Taj Mahal and Agra Tour By Car From Delhi
US$228.00
Overview
Experience the beauty and history of the Taj Mahal and Fort Agra on this private tour from Delhi by car. Enjoy the luxury of your own personal transport as you make your way through some of the city's top attractions, including one of Agra's local markets and a buffet lunch at a 5-star hotel. 
What to Expect
This private tour will start with hotel pickup in Delhi at 6am. From there you will drive straight to Agra in a chauffeur driven air-conditioned car (204km/3hrs) via the Yamuna Expressway.

At 10am you will arrive at the Mughal city of Agra, and your local guide will take you to visit the UNESCO World Heritage site and Wonder of the World the Taj Mahal. When you get out of the car in Agra, you will first enjoy a tonga (horse carrage) ride from the parking lot to the Taj Mahal and will marvel over the fantastic view.

As you arrive at the Taj Mahal, your guide will teach you about the architecture of the monument and will narrate the building's history. The building, a white marble mausoleum, reveals undying love story of Emperor Shah Jahan and Queen Mumtaz. It’s construction lasted a period of 22 years from 1631 AD to 1653 AD, and around 22,000 people worked on it daily.

After the Taj Mahal, you will see a local traditional art marble demonstration and proceed to 5-Star Hotel ITC Mughal, Jaypee Palace & Trident for a buffet lunch.

At 12pm, after lunch, you will proceed to the Agra Fort, another UNESCO world heritage site. This fort was renovated with red sandstone on the orders of Emperor Akbar, and is surrounded by 21.4 meter high walls and four gates on its four sides.

Quila-i-Akbari, as the Red Fort is also called, also served as the capital to the Mughal sultanate due to its prime location. Your guide will brief you about the Diwan-I-Aam (the hall of public audience used for hearing common public grievances), the Diwan-I-Khas (the hall of private audience), the Sheesh Mahal (a glass palace with tiny mirrors on the wall), the Jasmine Tower and other mosques inside the Agra Fort. It is believed that Shah Jahan was imprisoned and died there as well.

From your guide, you will come to know about the history of this Mughal architectural feat, why it was created and when. You will also enjoy taking pictures and experiencing the Mughal Era of Emperor Akbar. Also, you'll explore the local market of Agra very close to the Taj Mahal.

You will finish your visit to the Agra Fort at 4:30 pm, and from there you will leave for Delhi taking the Yamuna Expressway. On your arrival back in Delhi, you will be transferred to your hotel or airport for your onward journey.
